Rookies and veterans are working out together this week as the Cincinnati Bengals go through the acclimation period of training camp. The acclimation portion of camp features on-field walk-throughs, which means Joe Burrow is tossing his first passes to A.J. Green this week.
“He's one of the best receivers in the league. I couldn't be more excited to work with him,” Burrow said of Green.
The story said Green hasn’t entered a season with a rookie starting quarterback since he and Andy Dalton both started as first-year players in 2011. The wideout caught 65 footballs for 1,057 receiving yards and had seven touchdowns with Dalton throwing him the football in 2011. Factor in a new coach, too, and Green is going off the board in the sixth round which is the latest we've seen in years.
